Doctoral Degree Conferment Ceremony

Chalmers was given the right to confer doctorates in 1940. Since then 11 jubilee doctors, 215 honorary doctors3 279 PhDs (Engineering), 353 PhDs (Philosophy), 3 PhDs (Economics) and one PhD (Medicine) have been conferred. 

Chalmers organizes a Doctoral Degree Conferment Ceremony every year.


At the solemn ceremony, the new PhDs receive their symbols of honour: a diploma, a hat and a ring. 

(Chalmers hands out diplomas, the hat and the ring is bought by the PhD voluntarily).

 Jubilee doctor is a title earned by individuals who received their doctoral degree and conferred fifty years ago at Chalmers University of Technology.

At the Conferment Ceremony, honorary doctorates are awarded to distinguished individuals from Sweden and abroad. The honorary doctors receive all three symbols of honour: a hat, a diploma and a ring.
